Ben Barrell

EARLY LIFE:
In my childhood I became fascinated with shapes. I joined a Saturday morning art club where I was able to create plaster and concrete casts. Creating a scale model of the farm I lived on in North Cornwall was my first project. Playtime was always great fun, I loved being outside, I was either on the farm or down by the coast. This triggered my intrigue with the Ocean and the stunning, rugged Cornish landscape. As time went on I became immersed in sailing and surfing. I loved to watch the shapes on the water as the waves rolled up and yachts sailed elegantly across its horizon. My visual memories and sketches of these dynamic shapes translated into the physical forms I created back then and continue to make now.
